It was a bittersweet meeting yesterday, as members of Pearl of the West and visiting Brethren passed 5 Brothers to the Degree of Fellowcraft. There was an excellent turnout, a great time was had by all, and we want to congratulate them all. They also did an exceptional job on giving back their E.A also.
But we also saw Brother Glenn Clarke sitting in the East for the last time at Pearl of the West, as he is moving to the East coast of Florida. Worshipful Clarke, A Past Master of Pearl, has been a friend and well respected part of the Lodge for many years. Though he will be missed, we wish him well in his move.
One thing that Br. Clarke said to the newly passed Brothers was how although he doesn’t know anyone in the area he is moving to, he is comforted by the fact that he can walk into any Lodge over there and feel welcomed.
So we say thank you to all the visiting Brethren who not only attended, but participated in the Degree, good luck to Worshipful Clarke, and congratulations to our new Fellowcrafts!
